A recent edition to the Moto E series of affordable smartphones exhibited several discrepancies in our review, not the least of which was launching with Android 9.0 (Pie) in 2019. However, a new Geekbench 5 listing suggests that this issue, at least, may be resolved soon. It shows that a phone with the E6 Plus' specs, but running an updated OS.

The Moto E6 Plus launched with a MediaTek Helio P22, a 6.1-inch HD+ display and up to 4GB of RAM. However, even at a starting price of about US$107, it may have disappointed users with Android 9.0 (Pie) out of the box. Furthermore, 9 months after its introduction at IFA 2019, Motorola has yet to update this phone.

A new entry on the Geekbench 5 database may indicate that is about to change, however. It contains the same details on the Moto E6 Plus (or motorola moto e(6) plus, as it is characterized in this benchmark) as all of its older listings, with the exception of the inclusion of Android 10 rather than 9 as its OS.

The apparently updated unit of the E6 Plus is of its 2GB RAM SKU, and has achieved slightly better scores than its Pie-running counterparts on the same website. Then again, this leak consists of only one such listing (correct at time of writing), which is not much to go on in terms of its veracity at this point.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
